The first time I ever been to Stillwells Bakery and Cafe, I tried their Florentine Cup and it was heaven in my mouth. I haven't been there in a while and I've been craving their Florentine Cup lately. So today, I decided to go get me some after class since it's only up the street from my school. I love any pastries with fruits, so I decided to get the other ones along with some cream horns;] They're all so delicious!
A little over a week ago, Beauty From the Earth Cosmetics had a back to school sale on their mineral makeup. I was very fortunate to have caught the sale on the last day since I've been wanting to try out their mineral eyeshadow for some time now. The sale was 6 sample size mineral makeup for $8, it's usually $2 each. You could pick from any mineral eyeshadow, blush, or foundation.
I love how the website is organized into colors and finishes, so it was very easy for me to shop. I didn't plan on getting 24 samples, but the colors in the shimmer finish were so gorgeous, I couldn't help it. I was surprised that they also upgraded one of the eyeshadow to a full size jar ;] I haven't had time to play around with them, but hopefully I'll get to do some swatches soon. And if they turn out great, I think I'll go get a few more from the velvet frost finish next time.
I went to Ross a few days ago to see if they have any cute tops I could use for school, instead I came out with these:
Simple Pleasures Nail Polish Assortments $4.99 - I saw this while standing in line and I just had to get it. Really great for nail polish and cupcake lovers or it would make a really cute gift.
e.l.f. Mini Eyelash Curler $1.99 - I don't own a mini eyelash curler and it was the last one on the shelf, so why not buy it right? I have really short eyelashes at the corner of my eyes, which doesn't get curled with a eyelash culer, so I'm hoping this can do the job.
Hello Kitty Cosmetic Pouch $3.00 - It was a set, but I guess someone stole the lip jelly, nail polish, press-on nails and hair clips that was suppose to come with it. Oh wells, I thought this would make a cute pouch for coins, makeup, etc...
This took forever to ship! I ordered it on July 27 and didn't get it until August 12. I guess it was because of the heavy orders from their anniversary sales. One of the two palettes that I ordered was damaged during shipment. Don't worry, I wasn't planning on giving a broken palette away. I emailed E.L.F. the next day and they sent me a replacement right away. It took about 3 days for the replacement to be shipped and it was in one piece ;] I think the best way to contact E.L.F. is through email.
The broken blush got everywhere! It was easy to dust it off from the eyeshadows, but I didn't even want to bother with the lipgloss.
The top part, near the numbers, of the swatch I used Urban Decay Primer Potion as base and no base towards the bottom. There's a slight difference.
The broken blush, it's such a pretty color too!
They're in the same order as the palette.
I know, I know...I've mention about my next giveaway, but honestly I don't even know when it's going to begin. I'm hoping within the next week though ;] I've ordered a few things and it still has not come in. I just want everything in my possession before I begin my giveaway so I could send it off to the winner right away.
I've been trying to spend time with family and friends this past week since school starts next week already. Since both my parents were off today, we decided to have lunch at the beach along with my sister and our two clients. We bought some really bomb Garlic Shrimp in a pan at Geste Shrimp truck at Kahului Harbor and decided to stay in town. We had a lovely lunch at Kanaha Beach and the weather was just as lovely too. Too bad my little brother was in school today, it would have been a perfect family day out.
My partner in crime since middle school, Kelly, loooooves the gyaru fashion. So, she asked me to make her into one! It was good timing since we both needed a little getaway from reality, her circle lens came in and I have a whole lot of eyelashes to work with. I used the eyelashes I got from Born Pretty Store in #113 and #201 (bottom lashes). Click here to see the lashes I got from Born Pretty store.
I've always been a fan of cream puffs ever since I became best friends with my friend Ly back in middle school. Her dad works at the Komoda Bakery, which is well known for their yummy cream puffs. Her dad would have her bring some over when we hung out or went to the mall together.
Anyways, my friend Kodie just came back from Oahu & brought back some cream puffs for my family from Liliha Bakery. I thought these were just the regular cream puffs that you could get at Komoda's, but when I opened the box....OMG! Now Komoda needs to come up with something like this! lols...
I just found out they're called Coco Puffs lols. I thought they would be filled with what was topped over it. But it's sOoOoOo delicious!
Yesterday, I got this lovely lippie in the mail from my girl Dinah of ^D.G.S.Beauty^. She's really sweet for sending me this as a thank you for the banners I made for her. Thank you so much Dinah!!! I'm still in the process of trying to perfect the banner lols.

Last Thursday, I got these in the mail. They are my first Born Pretty purchase ^___^ I was expecting it to take 2 weeks to ship, but got here sooner than I expected. They were sent out on July 29 & got them on August 4. So that's less than 1 week! Not bad for international shipping.
While I was organizing my makeup last week, I found a Wet n Wild Coloricon palette in "Sweet As Candy" that I didn't know I had. So, today I decided to do an eye look using the palette. I also put the NYX Slim Eye Pencils that I just got to use ;] I love love love the colors <3
